Ring out the old, ring in the new, 

Ring, happy bells, across the snow: 
The year is going, let him go; 

Ring out the false, ring in the true. 

Ring out a slowly dying cause, 

And ancient forms of party strife; 
Ring in the nobler modes of life, 

With sweeter manners, purer laws. 

Ring out false pride in place and blood, 
The civic slander and the spite; 
Ring in the love of truth and right, 

Ring in the common love of good. 

Ring in the valiant man and free, 

The larger heart, the kindlier hand; 
Ring out the darkness of the land, 

Ring in the Christ that is to be.

(Prize Essay.) 

Today we are witnessing the scene of the nations of 
Europe locked in a death struggle. We are moved by the 
heroism of that struggle, but we are appalled by its awful- 
ness, not only because of the enormous death tollage and 
the horror of suffering, but also because it is all unneces- 
sary. Such a conflict needs explanation. Statesmen, his- 
torians and journalists have been trying to justify their 
respective nations and to convince the world audience that 
their rivals were to blame. Although the stone dropped 
into the pool of European politics was seemingly a small 
one, the ripples it caused have become gigantic waves, 
surging and buffeting with fruitless energy. 

The underlying causes of the war have their sources 
in those years when the spirit of "Liberty, Equality and 
Fraternity" blazed forth in the French Revolution, and in 
the eighteenth century when the seed of commercialism 
was planted in the policy of nations, which today can 
scarcely find room to send out its many branches, and in 
those years, also, when racial and national feeling, when 
militarism and imperialism took deep root in the minds of 
men. These great principles have strongly influenced the 
diplomatic relations of the great nations. 

Much of the intense feeling, so manifest today, can be 
traced to the aftermath of the war of 1870-71, in which 
France sufferd an irreconcilable humiliation in the loss of 
her cherished possession, Alsace-Lorain, and in the indem- 
nity demanded by her conqueror, Prussia. Notwithstand- 
ing the fact that France has been compared by her enemy 
to a "strong man who has run his race and is now begin-

ning to approach senility," she has kept the flame of 
"Revanche" brightly burning through the years of Ger- 
many's rise. A greater result of the war of 1870-71 was 
the effect upon the great enemy of France, Germany her- 

Following the German success in that war a new 
epoch began in the life of that great people. Relieved 
from the burdens of the Thirty Years war and leaving 
behind forever the old disintegrating. policy of the states, 
the German empire launched a great world-program under 
the Hohenzollern rule. With all the energies of youth, 
young Germany has been polishing her armor and weld- 
ing into a mighty blade the petty swords of the small Ger- 
man states. Although entering the lists so late, with the 
advantage of youthful vigor, Germany is determined yet 
to win honor and fame equal to that of the older nations 
of Europe. The world policy of the young nation demand- 
ed more territory to meet the needs of industrial achieve- 
ment, for forty years of vast industrial progress German 
rulers and statesmen have dreamed of a universal empire. 
They believed so strongly in their type of civilization as 
to think it should prevail everywhere, whether by "right 
or might." Russia's vast empire and hordes of Slavs bar- 
red the way east-ward. England's great navy ruled the 
sea, so that Germany's territorial expansion seemed hope- 
lessly restricted. 

To the German mind there was but one way left to 
realize the nation's ambition, the creation of a military 
machine so powerful that it could crush its foes both on 
land and sea. This national ambition was declared by 
the present emperor in 1890 at Brandenburg, where he 
said, "I look upon this people and nation handed down to 
me as a responsibility conferred upon me by God. My 
duty is to increase this heritage. Those who try to inter- 
fere with my task I will crush." The army and navy have 
received every aid and encouragment as a result of this 
policy. Echoes of the emperor's sentiments have appear-

ed extensively in modern German literature. The book 
entitled, "Germany and the Next War," by General Von 
Bernhardi, has aroused unusual interest as a defense of 
military power . Bernhardi quotes the great German his- 
torian, Treitschke, who says, "It has always been the 
weary, spiritless and exhausted ages which have played 
with the dreams of perpetual peace;" and again, "A thou- 
sand touching traits testify to the sacred power of the love 
which a righteous war awakes in noble nations." 

These principles, as seen in the philosophy of Treit- 
schke, have become the faith and practice of many men in 
Germany today. The motive in all her diplomatic rela- 
tions is this same world policy. Accordingly, after 1871, 
German statesmanship faced the task of preventing the 
formation of a hostile coalition of jealous rivals until the 
new nation was thoroughly consolidated. 

Bismarck, that master mind of German politics, suc- 
ceeded in forming the Drei-Kaiser-Bund in 1872, uniting 
the interests of Russia and Austria with Germany. Be- 
cause of geographical, historical and national conditions, 
Austria and Germany formed a close union. Russia, the 
other member of the alliance, soon saw the disadvantage 
of a strong, united Germany as her neighbor, instead of 
the loose confederation of states. Nor did the conflict 
between Austrian and Russian interests in the Balkan pen- 
insula conspire to make the Three Emperor's League a 
happy one. The shattering of this friendly understanding 
came as a result of the Treaty of Berlin, closing the Russo- 
Turkish war of 1878, when Austria was favored at the 
humiliation of Russia. The loss of Russian support was 
counteracted by the formation of the Triple Alliance, with 
Italy as the third member. 

These new diplomatic relations of Germany aroused 
France to push her own foreign policy with increased vigor 
and to strengthen her position in Europe by securing 
strong alliances. These desired allies were secured after 
years of friendly relations. In 1895 the Dual Alliance 
between France and Russia was consumated. Then France 

Page Five 

Witt College Greeting* 

secured the formation of The Anglo-French Entente Cor- 
diale, which was concluded in 1904. Russia and England 
closed the long period of mutual suspicion between them 
in 1907, when a convention was signed for an amicable 
settlement of all questions at issue between the two powers 
in Asia. Thus was formed the "Balance of Power," by 
the two great camps of nations; Germany, Austria and 
Italy on the one hand; France, Russia and England on the 
other. This grouping of the great continental nations 
helped to preserve the peace of Europe. 

In the Balkan states, however, there lurked latent 
forces of danger to Europe's peace. An additional distub- 
ing factor arose in the revolution of the young Turks in 
1908. At the close of this revolution Austria seized the 
opportunity to annex Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Haps- 
burg Monarchy. The excitement in Russia, caused by this 
bold move of Austria, was restrained by German influ- 
ence. All the nations now realized that the immense mili- 
tary power of Germany had made that nation arbiter in a 
question vitally affecting Europe. The balance of power 
was further tested in the Morocco crisis of 1911, when the 
German gunboat, Panther, was sent to Agadir, ostensibly 
to demand cessions of territory, but secretly to feel the 
pulse of the Anglo-French Entente. A rupture seemed 
inevitable. Finally two Franco-German treaties were 
signed, one recognizing the French Protectorate over 
Morocco, the other providing for the cession of part of 
the Congo territory to Germany. The Entente Cordiale 
between France and England proved its strength, while 
all realized more than ever th$ value of these groups of 
European Powers to maintain equilibrium and peace. 

The Triple Alliance was severely threatened in the 
Tripolitan War of 1912, when Italy first deserted the Alli- 
ance but was forced to reunite with Germany and Austria 
in order to secure Tripoli from the Turks. 

The Balkan war soon followed this victory of German- 
ism in the Mediterranean. 

At the close of this war a critical situation faced the 

Page Six 

Qtt)t College Greeting* 

council of nations to whom Turkey appealed. Bulgaria 
and her allies were in a position by their victories to make 
the demand, "The Balkan States for the Balkans," the 
principle of territorial adjustment. The real problem of 
the Powers was how to reconcile the old ambitions and 
rival sympathies oi Austria and Russia in that part of the 
world with the new situation. 

Servia, with awakened national consciousness, was not 
satisfied with the terms of the treaty that closed the war, 
but continued to strive for a port on the Adriatic sea. 
This aspiration was opposed by Austria and as a result 
the old racial antipathy and hatred toward Austria was 
revived. This feeling culminated in the assassination of 
the Austrian Crown Prince and his wife at Serajeva in 
Bosnia on the twenty-eighth of last June. This was the 
match that dropped into the powder magazine of Europe. 

In the correspondence immediately preceding the for- 
mal declaration of war, which flashed across the world 
those messages representing the destinies of nations, we 
see the feeling of deep reluctance on the part of each 
nation to take the initiative in the awful conflict that was 
to follow. Austria waited for Servia to show some signs 
of regret or a desire to investigate thoroughly the condi- 
tions back of the murder and to punish the offenders. 
Austria, however, made the time limit in her ultimatum 
to Servia unreasonably short, allowing but forty-eight 
hours in which Servia must reply to demands impossible 
for a nation to meet and retain its self-respect. Austria 
justified herself in the light of previous experience with 
Servia's dilatory methods. Russia is blamed for her haste 
in giving orders for mobilization and her apparent eager- 
ness to prepare for war. 

The world was startled by the violation of Belgium's 
neutrality by Germany which is the result of the philoso- 
phy of national conduct, held not only by theorists but also 
by the ruling class in Germany, as stated by Bernhardi, 
"The political behavior of a state is governed by its own 
interests." It is the result, also, of Bismarck's principle 

Page Seven

that, 'Treaties cease to be valid when the private inter- 
ests of those who are concerned no longer reinforce the 

This terrible war is the logical result of the principles 
and ideals that have been stamped upon the succeeding 
generations of Europe. The ideals of nations today are 
prophetic of the events of tomorrow. It has been given 
to the ideal of militarism, hanging in the sky above the 
youth of these nations to TRANSFORM them in to MILI- 
TANT SQUADS. Above the rude Grecians, Homer and 
his brother poets peopled the sky with invisible heroes, 
the inevitable result was, Athens, the city of art and elo- 
quence. In the fourteenth century the artist became the 
ideal, the result was Florence, the city that is called the 
heart of the Renaissance. The ideal that has been held 
before the recent genrations of Europe is the soldier, the 
result is the war. 

Back of the immediate cause of the war, the murder 
ot the Austrian Prince and Princess, appear the national 
and international policies. Back of the policies rise the 
ideals that have been held before the people. Reason, 
ethics, diplomacy, loss of life and expenditure of resources 
have failed to prevent the present war. The final verdict 
of historians as to the rsponsibility for this most terrible 
struggle of all time will gather up the many elements and 
give to each its true measure of influence. 


'There is a sound we love to hear, 
T'is the sound of the Sophomore cheer," 
exulted the Sophomores as the Juniors, bearing the yellow 
and white, filed into Music Hall Auditorium, and placed 
their banner by the side of the red and white. 

Immediately there commenced a lively contest of 
songs whose leading characteristic was an unlimited 
frankness. From the Sophomores came 
Paf e Eight

'it's the wrong way to be so airy, 
It's the wrong way to crow." 
In answer sounded the Junior cry: 

"They were all puffed up, but no prize to show."

Marie Miller, Ruth Want, and Edna Robb represented 
the Juniors; and Marjorie Brown, Winifred Robinson, 
Edith Sawyer, and Grace Heller, the Sophomores. 

The Glee Club helped fill up the anxious wait that 
followed the giving of the essays. Then, the usual deep 
silence occurred as Miss Mothershead read the awarding 
of the prizes. 

"Honorable mention is given to Grace Heller; second 
place is awarded to Ruth Want, and first, to Marie Miller." 

There was joy in the camp of the Juniors. 


We're loyal to you Juniors dear, 

We'll always be true never fear, 

We'll back you stand and 'gainst the best in the land, 

For we know you have sand, Juniors, rah, rah.

Tiefe Stille herrschte im kleinen Atelier, nur ab und zu

durch den Schrei einer schrillen Knabenstimme auf der 
Strasse ploetzlich abgebrochen. 

Mit einem Ruck kam er zu sich, griff hastig nach 
seinen Hut and gelargte, fast ohne die Treppen zu berueh- 
ren, in den schwuelen Juliabend hinaus. Er liess sich 
von einem vorueberlaufenden Zeitungs jungen das Extra- 
blatt geben und eilte an einen Laternenpfahl, um die letzte 
Ent scheidung der Maechte zu lesen. Das grelle Liche 
der Grosstadtlampe liess sein blasses Gesicht deutlich sich- 
bar werden. Er hatte in den vergangenen Tagen zu sehr 

in den wolken geschwebt. Kreig War er doch

The bevy of college girls who crowd the trains after 
the Christmas holidays is different in many respects from 
the same ones who arrived in September. The "new" 
has dropped off as an old shell and everyone is in the 
strict college meaning of the word an "old" girl. This 
means that we have gone through the period of adjust- 
ment, that we feel ourselves a part of the college, and 
that we have something for which fo work. The first 
three months have meant much to all of us, but because 
adjustment is always a hard process the next five months 
should count twice if not three times as much. We know 
that we have energy and pep, for we know it now if we 
didn't before the essay contest, and that we can accom- 
plish something. Let us keep our pep and make practical 
application of it during the rest of the year! 

The first suggestion which the Greetings wishes to 
make just at present, is that your pep be thrown into the 
is yet time to enter as the contest does not close until Feb- 
short story contest. Talk about it! Work for it! There 
ruary 10. You may have a hidden talent which needs to 
be unearthed by trying. Now is your opportunity to begin. 


No lessons will there be during exam week this year, 
that is, during the three all-important days that will SEEM 
long enough to be called by even a longer name than 
week. Now we do not have to endure the chagrin of a 

Page Thirteen 


Witt CoUtge (greetings; 

recitation of "I-don't-knows" coming after various tortur- 
ings of the head for the sake of the rebellious pen. The 
three days, January 28, 29 and 30, are to be divided into 
three two-hour periods each and the schedule for these 
two-hour exams has been posted. Happy is the girl that 
on no one of these days has three try-outs. 


At last we have fire drills at I. W. C. When that series 
of short, sharp bells is heard, up jumps every girl and fac- 
ulty member in the building, grabs her coat and shoes, 
slams down her windows, switches on her light, seizes a 
towel and, if possible, her roommate; then, leaving her 
door open, marches into line at her end of the corridor. 
As soon as everyone in that particular family has arrived, 
the line starts its dignified march down stairs, each girl 
and it is quite surprizing how quickly the building can be 
with one hand on the shoulder of the girl in front of her, 
emptied. Now, how safe we feel, even after reading of 
some dreadful fire. 



In accordance with the rulings that have been made 
in various universities and some of the larger woman's col- 
leges, such as Wellesly and Smith, it has been decided to 
give academic credit toward a bachelor's degree for a lim- 
ited amount of advanced technical work in music, art, and 

Also a new four years course is to be offered leading 
to a degree of Bachelor of Music. In this course about 
one-half of the work is prescribed work in Liberal Arts, 
the remainder being various courses in theoretical music 
and a certain proportion of applied music.

Y. W. C. A. NOTES. 

The meeting for January loth was led by President 
Harker, who chose for his subject ''Preparation for Serv- 
ice." He emphasized most forcibly the fact that it is only 
in doing well the small things that are at hand, that we will 
ever be ready to .meet the larger problems when they 
come. It was a most helpful talk and a pculiarly oppor- 
tune one, coming as it did, just before the visit of our 
traveling volunteer secretary, Miss Elizabeth Conklin. 

Miss Conklin was with us January 11-12, and in her 
two talks to the girls, she reminded us again that a life 
without a directing purpose is a life wasted, and warned 
us against being like pins, pointed one way and headed 
another. Her interviews with the Cabinet and the Mis- 
sionary Committee of the Association, and especially with 
the local band of volunteers, were most appreciated and 
through her influence we are planning to adopt for next 
year, the suggested four-year course for Volunteer Mis- 
sion-Study Groups. In this course, the work is graded 
so that a Freshman who follows the plan will have a very 
well rounded idea of missionary work, both from a histor- 
ical and an immediate point of view by the time she be- 
comes a Senior. 

The plan for the meetings for the next five or six 
weeks includes a faculty series in which the heads of sev- 
eral of the departments will tell us of the "Religious Side 
of My Department." Mr. Stearns opened the discussion 
Sunday, the 1 7th, in a very illuminating talk on the effect 
religion, and particularly Christianity, has had upon music. 

On January 9th and 10th, there was a Central Illinois 
Student Volunteer Convention at Decatur, with the Y. M. 
and Y. W. Associations at Millikin as host and hostess. 
We had hoped to have several delegates but because of the 
time of year which proved inconvenient for many of us, 
there were finally just three to represent I. W. C. at Deca- 
tur — Misses Laura Chassell, Ora Theobald and Ruth 
Want. The convention itself proved to be wide awake 

Page Fifteen 

GPfje College (greetings; 

and full of sustained interest, and although there were 
many helpful addresses and talks, perhaps the most enter- 
taining were those given by Dr. Geo. L. Robinson of Mc- 
Cormick Theological, Lloyd C. Douglas, general secre- 
tary University of Illinois Y. M. C. A., and Dr. W. D. 
Schermerhorn of Garret Biblical. Our own Miss Corbett 
was there, of course, and she sent her very best wishes to 
all the girls of the Woman's College Association, remind- 
ing us that she hopes to return to Jacksonville this spring. 
This convention occurs Menially and we are most happy 
to say that Miss Laura Chassell, of our own delegates, was 
elected as chairman of the committee that is to plan and 
preside over the next session in 1917. 

A letter read at Association meeting, January 10, ac- 
quainted most of the girls with the death of Miss Grace 
Dodge, and so we think that you will be interested in the 
following cutting from the Survey of January 9th: 

"A life of ardent participation in social, educational 
and religious artivities — none the less distinguished be- 
cause it so successfully avoided publicity— has just come 
to a close in the death of Miss Grace H. Dodge of New 
York City. Known most widely perhaps as chairman of 
the National Board of the Young Women's Christian As- 
sociation, Miss Dodge had also done a life work in other 

"She was acitve in the work of the American Vigil- 
ance Committee, instrumental in founding the Consumers' 
League, and of help in organizing the State Charities Aid 
Association. She was the first woman to serve on the 
Board of Education of New York City, having been ap- 
pointed by Mayor Grace in 1887. Her interest in educa- 
tion found expression also in Teachers' College, Columbia 
University, in the founding of which she was the most 
aggressive spirit. She was also president of the Board of 
Trustees of the American College for Girls at Constanti- 

"When the National Board of the Y. W. C. A. had 
been in existence five years, John R. Mott said of it, 'It

has done more than I thought could possibly be accom- 
plished in twenty years.' The National Headquarters 
Building in New York City has been called a monument 
to Miss Dodge, for it was the product of her foresight, 
and she was the natural and accepted leader of the work 
that went on within, its walls." 

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, January 23, 24, and 
25, have been set aside by the National Commission for 
observance of Child Labor Day. The idea is to bring 
before the public the facts of the child labor problem and 
the legislation that is being made. It was requested that 
all public schools and colleges observe one of these days. 
The Y. W. C. A. had charge of the chapel exercises on Sat- 
urday at which time talks were given. The child labor 
problem was presented by Elaine Burkman. Georgia 
Humbert gave the content of the Palmer-Owen Bill. 
Sketches and stories of the lives of the child laborers given 
by Phyllis Wilkinson made the situation very clear and 
real to the girls.

Miss Miller, class officer, and Miss Stevens, president, 
entertained the College Specials at an informal party Mon- 
day afternoon, Dec. 13th. 

Sewing, in the form of Christmas gifts, proved the 
main diversion of the afternoon. In a clever guessing 
contest, Miss Wilder was the successful winner. 

Music and dainty refreshments added much to the 
pleasure of the occasion. 


The Sophomores extend their congratulations to the 
Juniors for their victory and their essays. On the other 
hand, we are very proud of our contestants and of the 
friendly spirit which was displayed toward the winners. 
We certainly did show our well-known "pep" and the 
red and white, and with Esther Fowler as cheer leader, 
Music Hall rang with 1917 songs and yells. 

Sophomore enthusiasm began to show itself at the 
dinner party the Saturday night before the contest. The 
red and white was much in evidence in the red candles and 
streamers on the four special tables.

On Monday evening the Juniors celebrated the victory 
of the Saturday night before — celebrated it in the usual 
way — by a feed. The cookery was the favored scene for 
this merry gathering and never before had it witnessed 
such jollification. ' What wonderful cooks, what hearty- 
laughers, what all-round good-timers, what stupendous 
appetites were there! The winners of the contest were 
honored and feted and everyone was happy — but those 
that witnessed the occasion from afar off. 


On Jan. 9, the Home Economics Club gave a very 
interesting program on canning clubs. Papers were given 
on the great need and object of the club, the requirements 
and organization, and the different varieties of canners 
used. The Illinois club was taken as an example and its 
work clearly outlined. A brief outline was then given 
on the clubs of other states. The subject was found very 
instructive and helpful and the meeting was voted a suc- 
cess although the attendance was small. The next meet- 
ing will be held on February 3, and we are very anxious 
that every member will be present. 


A jolly, twinkling Christmas tree greeted each Phi Nu 
and guest as they gathered in the hall on the last Tuesday 
before the holidays. An attempt was made at fancy work 
but the numerous little tissue-wrapped parcels hanging 
here and there on the tree were too interesting to allow 
one's attention to divert from them. Off went the lights 
while Santa Phyllis carefully removed each parcel and pre- 
sented it to the owner. An American flag for our traveler, 
Miss Neville; a telephone for the busy dean; test tube for 
our chemistry shark, Edna; a rolling pin for the "eats

manager," Winifred; a sword for Feril; a Chinee and a 
Cannibal for our two S. V.'s, Rachel and Marie; and so on 
down the list until every one had received an appropriate 
remembrance. Then, while dainty refreshments were be- 
ing served, the clever little verses accompanying the gifts, 
were read aloud. 

Every Phi Nu reports a jolly good time during the 

Invitations are out for the marriage of Emily Foster 
to Mr. Russell of Kansas City, January the eighteenth, 



The School of Fine Arts has been presented with a 
set of the drawing books used in the art course of the Chi- 
cago public schools, by Mrs. Lambert. These books came 
to us through the courtesy of Miss Emma March, a super- 
visor of drawing in the Chicago schools and one of the 
compilers of the books. Miss March is a former student 
of the Illinois Woman's College. We acknowledge the 
receipt of the books with pleasure. 

Zillah Ranson, Fine Art graduate of 1906, is spending 
the winter in Colorado Springs, gaining back her health. 
Miss Ranson was the fortunate winner of the New York 
Art Students League scholarship prize, her last year at 
I. W. C. 

Miss Knopf recently purchased some new books and 
vases for still life use in the studio. 

Helen Adams has been doing some interesting work 
in modeling the last two months. 

During the holidays, Miss Knopf visited important ex- 
hibitions by Chas. H. Eaton, and other prominent Ameri- 
can painters. 

The Sketch Class has proved very interesting the past 
month. Julia Stucky, Marian Jane Robison and Nora 
Alexander have posed for the class.

Belles Lettres has taken up the study of the countries 
of the world — their literature, drama, people, and con- 
ditions of the countries themsleves. 

We have hajd visits from several of our old Belles 
Lettres girls the past two months. Helen Jones, Ruth 
Alexander, Louise Gates and Mrs. William Fay were back 
for the Christmas banquet, and Lucile Olinger and Siever- 
dena Harmel were here for short visits this month. 

An attractive addition to Belles Lettres Hall is the 
mahogany music cabinet that Mrs. Wilson, a former mem- 
ber, gave as a Christmas present to the Society. 

On the evening of January 18, Mrs. William Fay, or 
better known to us as "Emily Jane," entertained Belles 
Lettres in honor of Sieverdena Harmel. It was one of 
those delightful affairs such as only Emily Jane can give. 
The spirit of reunion predominated throughout the eve- 
ning, and recollections so dear to Belles Lettres girls were 


During the Christmas vacation the engagement of 
Elizabeth Dunbar to Rexford Tompkins was announced. 
Miss Dunbar was the business manager of the Greetings 
during the year 1912-13, and graduated in the class of '14. 

Mrs. F. B. Sanders, formerly Hortense Corbett, of the 
class of '08, who now lives at Edwardsville, 111., sent in 
the following list of former students, which may be of in- 
terest to the alumnae: 

Thekla A. Ellermann, now Mrs. H. W. Leigh. 70 
Aberdeen Place, St. Louis, Mo. 

Pauline Keenan, now Mrs. F. J. Igou, Bettendorf, la. 

Almeda Hannold, now Mrs. C. E. Dengee, 1100 N.

Mrs. Hortense Stark Roberts, of the class of '04, sent 
a very interesting letter telling of her happy life at Nash, 
Oklahoma. Among other things, she mentioned a visit 
from Edith Plourman of '05, who is now Mrs. Boston 
and is living at Lawrence, Kansas. 

Mrs. Dell Mandy Nichols, who has recently recovered 
from a very severe illness, is now living at 1020 E. 42nd 
Place, Chicago, 111. 

Mrs. Mary Bass Burd, of the class of 74, is now living 
at Armstrong, 111., and although her time is filled with 
many other duties, is still interested in the College. 

Ella Blake, who graduated in the Home Economics 
department, '13, was married at her home in Lafayette, 
Ind., during the Christmas holidays. 

The round robin letter of the class of '91 was received 
by Mrs. Layton of Jacksonville. Among others was a 
very interesting letter from Miss Melton of Japan. This 
letter certainly deserves special mention in the alumnae 
department. It goes to all the members of the class once 
a year and is still regular, although this is its twenty-fourth 
year. If other classes followed the same plan it would 
not be so easy to lose track of old friends, and we would 
feel a stronger bond uniting us to the College. 

A new alumnae organization has been formed at 
Champaign, on the nineteenth. Mrs. Frank K. Robeson 
entertained alumnae and non-graduate students at a lunch- 
eon at her home. The College colors were used as deco- 
rations, combined with flowers. After the delightful 
luncheon in five courses, the College songs were sung and 
the club was organized with Mrs. Robeson, president, and 
Mrs.I). A. Phillippe, vice-president. This promises to be 
one of our most flourishing alumnae organizations. 

Mrs. Leo McCutcheon Thompson of class MO, and 
Mrs. Lloyd Brown entertained at Colonial Inn Thursday, 
Jan. 28, in honor of Irene Thompson Miller and other

Bess Bannister visited her old friends at the College 
several days last week. It seemed like old times to meet 
her in the corridors again. 

Mr. and Mrs. Parnell spent Sunday at the College with 
friends. Mrs. Parnell was Effie McLaird, an old student. 
She and her husband are now doing Lyceum work and 
are making a great success. It was a great treat to hear 
Mr. Parnell sing and we wished that we might have kept 
them with us longer. 

Miss Thompson entertained the I. W. C. girls who at- 
tend the Christian church, Monday evening, Jan. 11, to 
meet Mr. and Mrs. Pontius. 

Saturday afternoon, the town girls held a delightful 
"cocoa" in their new room, for their friends. Several 
new things have been added to the room, making it look 
very cozy and comfortable. 

Florence Cooper of Danville visited Vivian Newman 
for several days. 

The Juniors re-inforced their ranks for the essay con- 
test by having two mothers with them — Mrs. Hughes and 
Mrs. Miles. 

Cards were received during Christmas vacation an- 
nouncing the marriage of Maude Alice Drake to Mr. Wal- 
lace Mehl on the eighteenth of December. 

After the essay contest, the Seniors met in Winifred 
Burmeister's room and tried to forget their disappoint- 
ment by talking and laughing and eating. 

Mrs. Turnball visited Dorothy Wesphall one week end. 


Red Eagle ceased speaking. He was an incongruous 
but impressive figure in the big drawing room, with his 
blanket drawn closely around him, his arms folded across 
his chest and his dark face emotionless. He had come to 
tell Richard Reneaux of the death of his father, the old

chief, and bid him return to his people. The tall dark 
man who stood so straight in the middle of the room was 
indeed a leader; handsome, fearless, proud, he had been 
at the head of his class and foremost on the athletic field 
of the big university. He had been popular, and the best 
and wealthiest homes in the city had been open to him. 
For a long time ne had been a welcome visitor at the home 
of his friend, Bob MacDermott, and had learned to love 
Jean, Bob's sister, and knew that she cared for him. It 
was at the MacDermott home that Red Eagle had found 
him and begged his return. His people needed the Young 
Chief, said the Indian messenger; they were poor, oppress- 
ed and discouraged; would he not return to the race of his 

Little did Jean ever guess the struggle going on in the 
heart of the man before her. Educated and trained as he 
had been in the white man's schools and homes, he had 
never forgotten that he was the son of a chief and had 
ever been loyal to his people. Now that he had graduated 
from the university, he had planned to return to them and 
take his place as a leader among them. But since he 
knew his love for Jean was returned, his desire had falter- 
ed and his plans had been delayed. He could not take her 
to a life among his Indian people, in their squalor and 
helplessness. She might desire to go, but he knew too 
well she could not understand as he did, what life among 
them would mean to a cultured, high bred girl, notwith- 
standing her love for him, and that she must not go was 
fixed in his mind. Could he give her up and return with 
Red Eagle? His eyes alone betrayed the pain in his heart, 
as they rested on the face of the girl he loved. Then 
Richard Reneaux, the Young Chief, turning to Red Eagle 
said, "Come, I go with you to my people," and passed 
out of the door and away from Jean MacDermott and his 
old life.

The Castle is reached by a winding avenue which 
threads its way for some distance up to the old stronghold. 
The first glance brings to mind the days of chivalry and 
romance. A picture is so vividly portrayed that one 
could not be surprised to see a gallant knight, clad in mail, 
lead forth his mighty army. 

The sides of the Castle are almost covered with a tap- 
estry of ivy and clinging vine. The countless towers and 
domes rise like great spires, and seem to scale the heights 
of the sky. In the morning a lake of soft white clouds 
float about their tops, and, as the sun drives the last rem- 
nant of night from the countless crevices and hiding places 
every shade of purple, yellow, red and brown breaks forth 
from the weather-worn stones. In the evening the ra- 
diance of the sunset lights the walls and towers until they 
glow like gold. 

Strolling onward, one turns to the right and gains a 
better view of the great court, where in ages past, the 
kings held their tournaments. In striking contrast to this 
a dismal dungeon stands in the distance. Here, doubtless, 
many a prisoner has suffered and died while the echoes of 
the royal sports were borne to him upon the breeze. As 
one draws nearer to the dark tower, it seems to defy the 
whole world. It has a mysterious glamor for the onlook- 
er, and the sight of it causes an uncanny and weird feel- 
ing. High up in the very top, a small window enclosed 
by heavy iron bars, is the only place through which the 
light can enter. In this gloomy dungeon one might find 
where the poor victims had carved their names or perhaps 
traced a word of prayer in the stone, thus appealing from 
tyranny to God. 

Ruth Mendenhall, 1 8. 


The Society is most happy to have Norma Perbix back

since November. We are glad that she has found it pos- 
sible to keep up with her work and can go on with her 
class the second semester. 

The date for the annual banquet has been set for 
the last of February. The society is expecting many of 
its former members to be back for the occasion. 


In several of the exchanges, we noticed the farewell 
of the departing 1914 staffs. To us, no doubt because 
our plan is different, it seems a little unusual that the term 
of office should be according to the calendar year instead 
of the school year. We believe that the Senior year of a 
student is the time when she can do most efficient work, 
and it seems a pity to use only one half of that year in the 
service that the editor-in-chief gives. 

The Kwassui Quarterly contains a very interesting dis- 
cussion of a problem, which, although very vital to the 
students of that school, is to be decided by someone else. 
Since the majority favor the re-establishment of the con- 
ger college course, we girls in America hope that such a 
thing will be possible. We admire very much the dainty 
cover of your Quarterly.
